Another Finish

Hey everybody! Did you know they have red heart fireworks? Or smiley faced ones with green eyes (hooray!) and red mouths? Cool!! It reached 111 degrees yesterday. :( More of the same today.

After finishing my patriotic finish yesterday, I decided to finish another piece before beginning another stitch.

Christmas Friends, 2 over 2 on 32ct lambswool linen

 I really like the way this turned out with the fabric that Nataly sent me along with this pattern I won from her. If you would like to stitch this too, go here.

The tape fell off of my nose last night. For what I went through, the scars are fairly small. I will keep applying the scar plus sunblock cream for months. My nose is still extremely sensitive though. The problem is I wear glasses and the pressure is constant and bad. We are headed back to the doctor who taped my nose today. Emerson's forearm hurts. He took a fall from his skateboard! :( I will ask the doctor when or if this pain/pressure is going to go away. Maybe it is still too soon. I hope so. I do not want to live with this constant painful nose.

Have a fabulous day whatever you are doing friends! Welcome to my new followers. I am so glad you found me. Thanks for all of your loving comments everyone. They have meant so much to me through all of this. You ladies are the best!!

Stitching, maybe more finishing, barely reading and praying,
Vickie

Vickie, Love the way your pillow turned out. I am so happy to see that you stitched and finished the chart you had won. Hope your nose is feeling better soon.

I'm so glad the scars are small, Vickie, but sorry to hear your nose is still so sensitive... Hopefully, with time it will heal completely.

Your little finish is so cute--great choice of fabric and lace :)

Can't even imagine 111--we are to be up to 100 tomorrow and that is enough. Surely, we'll all get a break in the weather soon?

Very pretty finish! I hope you will have less discomfort really soon, and I'm glad the scars are small.

No rain here so far today but I bet it rains before tonight.
Will be posting your giveaway out on Monday , hugs.

Pleased to hear your nose is getting better, difficult with glasses. What you need are those glasses on a long stick the type they used years and years ago. Can't think of the name, it's not a monocle.

Wonderful finish. I do hope you will soon be feeling much better. As I wear glasses also, I know how it can be an issue. Be careful...and keep the cream applied.

Your pillow turned out just perfectly Vickie so cute and the fireworks sound like fun. I hope the dr's visit went good both for you and Emerson.
